Supply Chain Planning and Optimization from WAM Systems
Being Responsive to Unplanned Events
Without scenario planning, your organization could be caught unprepared when facing an unforeseen event. Chemical manufacturers face very specific challenges keeping the supply chain running smoothly. Historically, many process industry organizations find themselves still recovering several weeks-to a few months-after an unplanned disruption, struggling just to get to a point where production approaches pre-incident levels. As planners try to prepare, inadequate planning tools force them to spend an unexpectedly large amount of time on disaster planning.

The key to being responsive is to develop robust plans – plans that work even with disruption – that can tolerate anomalies. For supply chain professionals, advanced planning goals should include minimizing the financial impact, preserving customer relations, business operations and maintaining optimal supply chain operations in the face of interruptions. Issues to address in the face of disaster include:
  • Plant shutdowns
  • Transportation Re-Routing
  • Inventory Relocation
  • Raw Materials / Feedstock Sourcing
  • Customer Support
  • Contingency Planning
  • Unpredictable Demand Management
The WAM Solution provides the ability to pre-plan, react, and recover from disasters. It takes into account business, operations, priorities, production facilities and product line. The WAM Solution extends existing planning and recovery processes beyond what spreadsheet-based solutions provide. WAM is focused on supply chain planning solutions and consulting that benefit the chemical industry. Our solution provides rebalancing options in a cost-effective and time-critical manner – and provides both day-to-day planning activities as well as emergency planning activities – all in one package.

Having the right technology is critical to reacting and recovering. The WAM Solution’s intuitive interface and rapid recalculation capabilities allow you to both shorten the amount of time involved in creating your recovery plans and the time executing them. Our solution lets you recover as quickly as possible with the least amount of impact – paying special attention to the dynamic production environment as it gradually comes back online and providing visibility along the way – so your organization can quickly rebuild and provide a roadmap for returning to pre-disaster levels.

As a supply chain professional, you must focus your energies on achieving best-practice goals. How do you initiate an enterprise-wide effort to improve customer service, inventory, scheduling? By proactively engaging in successful strategic and tactical planning. The WAM Supply Chain Solution helps you make smarter decisions based on profitability, attain global supply chain visibility, support for collaboration and assists in determining the right safety stocks to meet customer service levels.
